Description: Thai Select seeks to thrill the New York epicure with Thai that's global...
Thai Select seeks to thrill the New York epicure with Thai that's global, fresh and fun. Located in the midtown-west area of Manhattan, Thai Select offers healthy, modern Thai cuisine with worldly flare. Although the signature taste remains authentic Thai in flavor, the presentation might be a bit French in aesthetics, a bit Italian in portion and a bit Japanese in simplicity. With dishes like Kee Mao Fettuccini (made with whole wheat pasta) and Fruit Fried Rice (stir-fried with seasonal fruits), Thai Crabcake (encrusted to perfection) and Coconut Puff Martini (jumbo shrimp hand-battered in coconut strips), the kitchen selects only the very best dishes in Thai cuisine and only the freshest of ingredients picked from the farmer's market for our patrons; hence the name, Thai Select.

Great food, great service!

Lovely Thai meal and fantastic service. Prices very reasonable for NYC, and 18.5% gratuity only recommended for groups of 5+. Would definitely recommend.

I ordered a green curry duck which was very tasty but the portion seemed to be smaller than what you usually get at other Thai restaurants.

We had a great dinner in this restaurant at a fare price. Food was fresh and tasty, service was quick and efficient. Interior has some nice touches. Gratuity was added automatically to our bill. It was rather high (18% I think) but consider the good service, food and prices, it was okay for me.

Tried the restaurant after reading favourable reviews. They were absolutely spot on. We ordered a green chicken curry, kway tow with prawns and some spicy eggplants. All were delicious and comparable to the better Thai restaurants that we tried elsewhere. Portions were large compared to UK and service excellent. Restaurant had an easy relaxed ambience and we would have returned,... More

The food was great so no complaints there. However 18% gratuity was added to a bill for 2 people. Far to high and it's not mandatory. We left half the requested gratuity only to be chased down the street by a waitress who quickly disappeared once I explained the issue. I will not be back here.

We had such a nice meal at Thai Select. It was a random pick during our trip to NYC because our feet were very sore and we didn't feel like walking far. This was about 4 blocks from our hotel. It was crowded, which was a good sign. The food was fantastic - we had the chive pancakes and green... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
